Bird Towns in Pennsylvania

birdtownlogo2010_200Audubon Pennsylvania has a great Bird Town program that helps local  municipalities improve the habitat value of their town, promote environmental stewardship, and recognize their efforts.  Among the criteria to become a Bird Town, a municipality must:

1) Complete a Bird Town Application

2) Agree to work with Audubon to immediately promote their Bird Town status by:

    • Publishing the “Welcome to Bird Town” article in their next newsletter
    • Creating a Bird Town webpage on the municipal website
    • Posting at least five street signs (provided) and one banner
    • Providing Audubon with local press contacts to promote Bird Town Backyard Workshops
    • Making outreach materials available to the public

3) Assign a point person to act as liaison between the “town” and Audubon.

4) Promotion of a Bird Town Festival.  This may be a regional festival, a stand-alone municipal festival, or part of an existing eco-fest or community day

So far there are 19 Bird Towns in 7 Pennsylvania counties.  Another great idea from Audubon PA, a leader in urban bird conservation among the Audubon network in the U.S. Check it out!
